The Astros and Yankees were stuck in a pitcher's duel on Wednesday afternoon, but it was Houston coming away with the 2-1 win in the end. >> Box Score
Things to know about Wednesday's game...
1) The Yankees, once again, went with an opener as Jonathan Holder got the ball for the first two innings. He was stellar, allowing no hits and only one walk to move his spring ERA to 0.87.
2) Gary Sanchez saw another RBI double come his way today, and it was the only source of Yankees offense as well. Sanchez had two on Tuesday as well. But for nit-picking purpose, he did leave five runners on base when he was at the dish.
3) The first-base battle is staying hot, with Luke Voit going 2-for-4 to move his spring average to .316. Greg Bird was the DH in this one, and he went 0-for-1 with a walk, but his average is still ahead of Bird at .333.
4) Clint Frazier continues to struggle at the plate, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in this one. His average currently sits at .140, and with not a lot of time left before camp breaks, Frazier's chances at the 25-man roster are in high question.
5) Tyler Wade started this game in center field, and after going 0-for-2, he had to leave the game due to hip tightness. Wade, though, said the move was simply cautionary.
The Yankees take on the Cardinals on the road Thursday at 1:05 p.m.
